i had never employed a blackhat tactic,.. rules of the games had changed so many times in last 5 years and especially in last 2 years, and I always complied with google guidelines
I have been in this business for many years now. I had many websites, some informational, some transactional...
I had employed, sales staff, support staff, 2 highly skilled programmers, website designer, content creators, 10 writers...
My latest website to suffer was also my main website, it was operating in a micro-niche and was selling a product... it was not an EMD but a brand in that niche, now my website is totally gone because of March 6th 2013 update... a scrapper had scrapped my website's titles a month ago and set up multiple sites, that scrapper has vanished to somewhat (but not to a degree that I have vanished)
now query to my micro-niche product is giving totally garbage and irrelevant results... seems like google has killed that micro niche which I had discovered, now I am getting totally irrelevant results in SERP from irrelevant big brands like amazon and scribd
